If you look in your audio manual, you should find the variants there. If you cant, it should be online somewhere.
Why don't you look at aftermarket kits? you may find its cheaper for a start!
...Oh and welcome along

I've always liked the look of the one I've linked below, in terms of keeping it as OEM looking as possible. Has everything but DAB really. I've just grabbed the first link by the way to give you an idea, if interested you might wanna go digging for the best value option. And as mentioned above, first hand reviews would be great if you could find anybody.
If you're considering fitting the genuine Ford Denso Sat Nav unit, good luck! It's a massive job, complete dash-out job to install the required loom etc. Not to mention the difficulty and expense of trying to source all the parts!

Bit of bed-time reading for you...a project/guide thread from the ST Owners Club forum of a guy who did a complete retro-fit Denso install. Impressive work to say the least!
I know what you're sayin about unbranded stuff too, always feels a risk, and a potentially costly one!

It's old tech that was never operated to it's maximum potential.
Quickest way to add Dab is a Pure Highway unit connected to an aux input.
The way I do it is with an internet radio site through my phone, full access to all UK FM channels and apart from the occasional buffering pause it's all good.
Sound quality is good enough for me(and I'm pretty fussy about that sort of thing).
Just waiting for 4G to finally come to anywhere south of Bristol and using my Mi-Fi and then the sound quality will be even better.
Personal choices of course.
